“I’ve gotten a lot out of your course, especially creating quieter images with more subdued color. It’s freed me up to look at everything and to get in closer to the subject without the pressure to create a bold, in-your-face loud image. Also, thank you for your positive feed back as well as having this class in this class in the first place.”— Ellen Macdonald, Finding Beauty

“Your remarks really encouraged and motivated me. Thanks for all of the effort you put into this course and how you have helped me hone my vision of what I want to accomplish with my interest in minimalism — especially with the way you analyze our class photos and point out observations of my own individual style that I have never been aware of. Your input has had a significant impact on how I will observe and try to capture minimal, quiet, peaceful scenes wherever I go.” — John ( Jack) Cook, Finding Beauty

“Thank you for another great class. I really appreciate the thoughtfulness that you put into your feedback. You make connections between photos, encourage avenues to explore, and lead me to see the world around me in a new way. Fantastic class! I couldn’t be more satisfied.” — Susan Joenck, Beautiful Black & White


What Bryan says about instructor Brit Hammer

In a previous newsletter Bryan shared this:

“I rarely speak out with this level of enthusiasm for any of our instructors because ALL of our instructors are equally great in teaching their individual craft, so why have I chosen to call attention to one of our instructors Brit Hammer? Simply because of Brit’s ability to transform each of her students’ vision from good to great consistently, time and time again; in part because of her insightful lessons, but I can say unequivocally that Brit’s greatest strength is her in-depth and disarming critique style of each student’s weekly assignments.

This is the most often comment I receive from BPSOP students: ‘Brit’s critiques were the greatest value in this course. The assignments were great, BUT the critiques were by far the most valuable!’

If you have yet to take a class from Brit, consider [this] the best opportunity to grow your photography in ways you have perhaps never imagined!” — Bryan F. Peterson
